- PHP >= 7.2
- The mbstring PHP extension
- A Firebase project - create a new project in the Firebase console, if you don’t already have one.
- A Google service account, follow the instructions in the official Firebase Server documentation and place the JSON configuration file somewhere in your project’s path.
The recommended way to install the Firebase Admin SDK is with Composer. Composer is a dependency management tool for PHP that allows you to declare the dependencies your project needs and installs them into your project.
If you want to use the SDK within a Framework, please follow the installation instructions here:
composer require kreait/firebase-php
After installing, you need to require Composer’s autoloader:
<?php require __DIR__.'/vendor/autoload.php';
You can find out more on how to install Composer, configure autoloading, and other best-practices for defining dependencies at getcomposer.org.
Please continue to the Setup section to learn more about connecting your application to Firebase.
You can find usage examples at https://github.com/jeromegamez/firebase-php-examples and in the tests directory of this project’s GitHub repository.
